republican fight over funding and the affordable care act continues in texas, with the state's junior senator, ted cruz, leading the charge against the expansion of health care coverage in this country. >> i am publicly committed along with a number of other senators that under no circumstances will i vote for any continuing resolution that funds even one penny of obama care. now, why is it that every reporter in the media and a significant percentage of republicans assume with an impasse that president obama will never, ever give up his principles, so republicans have to give up theirs? if you have an impasse, you want to know one side or the other has to blink. how do we win this fight? don't blink. >> the senior senator from texas disagrees with his junior senator. >> even if you shut down the government, mandatory spending would continue to pay for the implementation of obama care. we're all on the same side when it comes to the objective. there is some difference of opinion as to the viability, or the likelihood of success of this particular tactic. >> a new survey from usa today shows t
every year the number one pick of all the law enforcement agencies within texas. their number one pick, all right? and i am a supporter of you -- you don't know it, but i am a supporter of you and a supporter of everyone in law enforcement. and i want you to do whatever is the proper thing. this lady did not -- i know in my heart, was not involved in intentionally walking out and stealing out $57. >> you don't know me, but i am the number one pick of law enforcement agencies. that seriously happened. that was texas's republican lieutenant governor, david dewhurst, on the phone, not doing anything, obviously, illegal, but throwing his weight around like a texas sumo wrestler, trying to wrangle some poor police sergeant in allen, texas, from releasing somebody from jail, a friend who had been jailed on shoplifting charges. the lieutenant governor, the number one pick of law enforcement, just wanted that police sergeant to do the proper thing, which should apparently be that he should take into account that any friend of texas' lieutenant governor must be innocent and, therefore must be r

better than we were and have been for a few yearses now. and yet, today, in texas, another round has just begun of unpaving the roads. seriously. in four counties in south texas, and two counties in west texas, today is the day state started converting paved roads into gravel roads. texas state department of trn transportation made the announcement last month. "since paving roads is too expensive and there's not enough funding to repave them all, our only other option to make them safer is to turn them into gravel roads. t "it's not like they're saying gravel roads are better, figured out grounds on which gravel roads are pleasing or sound, or get the most out of your performance car. those are not artisanal roads. roads in texas are being unpaved because pavement is something we cannot afford there anymore. in this part of texas it's happening because of the "sharp increase in heavy traffic due to the oil boom." the damage related to energy development has become so extensive that state and local authorities lack the funding to make all the repairs. the problem increased heavy equipment
back. i'm joy reid in for melissa harris-perry. a shortage of water in the state of texas has left residents thirsty, frustrated, and saying what the frac. according to recent reports, the process of hydraulic fracking, more commonly known as fracking, which is used as oil extraction, is making the drought problem in the lone star state much worse. these areas in red that you're seeing on the map are parts of texas that are experiencing extreme and exceptional drought. the drought problem has become so bad that at least one texas resident is actually wishing for a natural disaster to help. rancher buck owens told the guardian newspaper that, quote, we've got to get floods. we've got to get a hurricane to move up in our country and just saturate everything to replenish the aquifer. while fracking makes up less than 1% of the water use in texas, in certain counties, according to a university of texas study, fracking uses up 50% of the water supply. but before we go any further, just what is fracking? i'm going to leave that explanation to "all in's" chris hayes, who not only explaine
by birth. >> i'm a u.s. citizen by birth. and he couldn't be more right. that was texas senator ted cruz telling jonathan carl that he is, in fact, a natural born citizen, therefore eligible to be president. cruz went the extra mile to release his birth certificate to the dallas morning news which reported cruz was born in california to an american mother, has dual citizenship. and following that report, senator cruz released a statement renouncing his canada citizenship. he says now the dallas morning news that i have dual citizenship, i'm an american by birth and as a u.s. senator i believe i should only be an american. it's odd for me to say about a guy who i disagree with on many points, he couldn't be more right. the irony, of course, it mirrors the phony scenario of those who have been arguing to this day that president obama was born overseas, mostly in kenya and not eligible to be president. he was born to an american mother in the state of hawaii that was actually in america, by the way, but the birthers are all but silent when it comes to ted cruz. cruz has already visited the

of that country the moment he was born. unless the texas republican senator formally renounces that citizenship, he will remain a citizen of both countries, legal experts say." ted cruz released his canadian birth certificate in response to inquiries from the "dallas morning news." today ted cruz's senate press secretary released this oddly worded statement. "to our knowledge, he never had canadian citizenship." now, when a senator's staff speak for the senator says "to our knowledge," everything that follows that is a statement that everyone in that senate office knows might have to be quickly revised, and so it has been. the "washington post" is now reporting that ted cruz will renounce his canadian citizenship. cruz said, "now the dallas morning news says that i may technically have dual citizenship. assuming that is true, then sure, i will renounce any canadian citizenship. nothing against canada, but i'm an american by birth and as a u.s. senator i believe i should be only an american because i was a u.s. citizen at birth, because i left calgary when i was 4, and have lived my entire life
to block texas' new voter i.d. law. it was implemented after the supreme court back in june struck down a key provision of the 1965 voting rights act. nbc news justice correspondent pete williams joins us live. it's making headlines. >> it escalates the battle. the center piece is the supreme court's decision striking down the heart of the voting rights act. before the court ruled texas had to get preclearance for any changes on the election law and the federal court said no both to texas changing its voter i.d. law and redrawing its district lines for congressional and legislative districts. after that the justice department is pursuing new courts. we can't stop you under the old voting rights act but we'll use a new section to claim this voter i.d. law is unconstitutional. a written statement says we will not allow the supreme court's decision to be determined as open season for the states to pursue measures that suppress voting rights. what the court is saying -- or the justice department now is, rather, saying it's unconstitutional on its face and it's also asking the court in texas

? the republican senator from texas making certain that everyone knows he's an american citizen. he's actually so determined to convince the skeptics that he actually released his birth certificate and also said he would renounce his canadian citizenship if needed. now we can rest easy and we appreciate him for clearing that up for us. the editor of the guardian speaking out after the uk offices of the paper were ransacked by officials from britain's communications headquarters. that's basically the country's equivalent to the nsa. he described how officials destroyed hard drives in the basement of the guardian's office which contained information related to edward snowden's nsa leaks. he received warnings to stop reporting on the government surveillance programs as far as two months ago with officials telling him, quote, you've had your fun, now we want the stuff back, end quote. meanwhile guardian journalist glenn greenwald responding to his partner's nine hour detainment at heathrow airport vowing to get more aggressive in his focus on british surveillance programming adding that authorities w

the real protections we've had, and you saw right away in texas. >> within hours. >> within hours, texas had enacted a reapportionment plan that a three-judge federal court in washington declared not only was in effect, but intentionally rachellely discriminatory and therefore illegal, as soon as they threw out the fact that texas had to get such laws clear, texas announced they would institute -- they would effectuate the all right declared racially discriminatory redistricting plan, and states are coming up with all these different voter suppression items. so yes, that plus the effects on the judiciary, and another thing, we've had increasingly in the last 20 years draconian minimum -- mandatory minimum sentences, which means that a prosecutor, not a judge, really hat the negotiating leverage. the prosecutor says to a defendant if i don't plead guilty, i'll give you a 30-year sentence. if you ploo ed guilty, we'll make it six months. and the odds -- the disparity is so great that there's tremendous pressure, especially when there isn't adequate legal representation on innocent defendan

'll use the other half. more than they used to. starting with texas and continuing presumably with the other states that had had laws blocked by the voting rights act before the supreme court ruling but now feel like they can go ahead. so texas first. maybe alabama. maybe mississippi. maybe north carolina after today. sometimes you use the bully pulpit. sometimes you have the authority to weigh in and stop something directly. sometimes when you lose that authority, as justice department did during the, with the voting rights act case. sometimes when you lose that authority, you instead decide you're going to sue. what is the range of options available to you? and how do you use it? how do you still try to make progress when some avenues toward the progress you want to make are blocked? on the issue of drugs and criminal justice, the obama administration made it a priority to try to reduce the huge disparity in sentencing for crack cocaine versus powder cocaine. i mean, if cocaine is the problem, why be so much more lenient for one variety of cocaine and so much more strict for
to the texas lawsuit on voter i.d. issues. he said, i regret that the doj announced its intent to file a lawsuit against the texas voter i.d. law, citing the voting rights act, which i mentioned he supported. he said, i spoke with the attorney general and requested he withdraw the case until there can be a legislative fix of the vra. the lawsuit would make it much more difficult to pass a bipartisan fix to restore the heart of the vra. to translate that, you basically have a republican who's typically been on the side of voting rights act renewal now saying he doesn't think we can get there unless the attorney general doesn't enforce parts of the law that supreme court didn't even touch. i view that, yesterday's statement, as one of the worst things that's happened in this debate. what do you think going into this weekend is important for the folks you're working with to try to get section four and section five of the voting rights act restored? >> this attorney general has an obligation. he put his hand on a bible, took an oath of office to enforce the law. there's no more egregious v
to "hardball." that was texas senator ted cruz telling jonathan carl he is a natural born citizen, therefore eligible to be president. cruz went the extra mile to release his birth certificate stott dallas morning news which reported cruz who was born in canada to an american mother has dual citizenship by is bai the accident of being born up there. is he said now the dallas morning news says i may technically have dual citizenship. assuming that to be true, il renounce any canadian citizenship. nothing against canada but i'm an american by birth and a u.s. senator, i believe i should only be an american. well said. cy couldn't agree with him more. he couldn't be more right. the irony here of course, is that cruz's birth mirrors the phony scenario concocted by the birthers including donald trump to falsely have been arguing even to this day that president obama was born overseas mostly in kenya and not eligible to be president. the president was born to an american mother in the state of hawaii. that is actually in america. the birthers have been all but silent when it comes to ted cruz. cru

. >> the justice department, speaking of holder is suing texas over the new voter law. they wrote it's good to see the justice department so emphatically oppose laws that would check minority rights. unfortunately, fighting them is far easier said than done. how much can the department of justice do without the preclearance provision that was struck from the voting rights act? >> they can challenge these provisions, it just gets more difficult. in particular, in texas, which passed a voter i.d. law and redistricting plan last year, and the justice department was able to preemptively block them under the law as it was written. the supreme court struck down that part of the law and so the justice department is now returning using another section of the law saying we're still going to go after these provisi provisions, but right now they have to fight the law which is already in place, which is more difficult. they basically have one tool in their tool chest that's been removed. they still are showing it is a priority. >> i want to switch gears to this talk about impeachment. i want to play what sena

's mark potter joins me live now from ft. hood, texas. mark, good afternoon. what can you tell us about this verdict? >> reporter: well, hi, mara. that verdict came after about seven hours of deliberations by the u.s. army jury panel. as you said, they found nidal hasan guilty of all charges. they reached that verdict unanimously. he was found guilty of 13 counts of premeditated murder, 32 counts of premeditated attempted murder. hasan showed no signs of emotion in the courtroom. family members were there. they were silent, as instructed by the judge, but some of them were in tears. hasan, who never offered up a defense, never gave a closing statement, now faces a sentencing hearing beginning here at ft. hood on monday at 9:00 a.m. 13 membof the family members, e one of them representing the 13 people killed in that rampage, will be allowed to speak to the panel. the government will also have some expert witnesses. the most important point is that prosecutors will be seeking the death penalty. the other option is life in prison. we do not know in nidal hasan will make a statement. he ha
. in addition to general powell's comments, the justice department filed a lawsuit against the state of texas to block that state's voter i.d. law that went in effect a mere hours after the supreme court's decision essentially gutted the -- in a statement here, eric holder said -- we will not allow the supreme court's recent decision to be interpreted as open season for states to pursue measures that suppress voting rights. in fact, within hours of that comment, senator john cornyn of texas, who is one partisan paul, issued his own statement, saying -- facts mean little to a justice department bent on inserting itself into the sovereign affairs of texas and a lame-duck administration in trying to turn our state blue. excuse me, senator. lame duck? we are six months into a four-year presidential term, but that's the way they want us to think, isn't it, clarence? they've been really good at it. make people think that obama is on his way out the door. >> sure. the irony of this is, as was mentioned earlier, while the republicans have put so much attention on voter i.d. they had a problem getting
